Within the Kingdom of God, Jesus cultivates us all

” To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God? It is like a Mustard seed…once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants”

MK 4:30a, 31a, 32

The Kingdom of God is far and wide, It holds so much within it, that we would never see it all, even if we went out and explored every day throughout this journey of life. Then you have Mother Nature within this Kingdom, even when you get out and explore one area, as mother nature then changes it with even more beauty for us to see. The Kingdom of God is so vast, but yet, we take so for granted just how vast it truly is. God created all this around us, not so we can attack one another, not so we can take it all for granted, he did so, for us all to come together in unity, to walk through this journey, in the peace and joy, his son Jesus showed us when he came and walked his path here with us on this journey.

This bird flying freely within the Kingdom of God, without a care or a worry with each flap of the wings, simply taking in all the true beauty of what is God’s Country, this is what God had in mind for all of us, until we the people started getting away, for what this journey truly is all about. The trees within this picture started as a seed, then mother nature became the Farmer and sown these trees into a beautiful part of all the beauty we see around us. Look deeply into the horizon of this picture, take in mind that throughout all these mountains, there is plenty of wildlife that lives within them. That’s the problem in this society, if we can not see something, we then lose all belief in anything else out there, which explains why so many have walked away from the house of the Lord today. When you truly look deeply into that horizon, then you will totally see everything and not just a picture of a landscape.

A Farmer is one who cultivates the land, throughout the many societies the Farmer’s job has always stayed the same, to take care of the land, so they can bring the fruits of their labor to us all. Throughout time, the tools for the Farmer have changed, just like mother nature has changed the landscape throughout God’s country, to bring even more beauty to us all. There are many trades within this journey, with all the trades, there are also many tools for each trade. Now, these tools will be very different from one another, as they are specific to the job they were designed for. Very true all these tools have changed over time, only because they are designed to make our jobs easier, so we can enjoy the fruits of our labor, as we walk our paths to be better and stronger moving forward.

In many ways we the people of this society have failed each other throughout this journey, we have stopped short of coming together in unity, as we attack one another, we have stopped looking deeply within what we see, and totally judge one another from a glance, without truly knowing each other deeply. We say we want to get out within mother nature, then we leave a big mess in our wake, we do not clean up properly as we walk the trails of nature, yes mother nature will cultivate this land and keep it beautiful, but when we the people leave our trash, instead of disposing of it properly, eventually there will be no more beauty for any of us to see.

God was the first farmer as he created all this for us all to enjoy, then came the farmer to cultivate the land, bringing much fruit to us all, but mother nature has always been there to cultivate the landscape that God brought us. We the people and when we stay true to who we are, with the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, can and will bring much hope to each other, but with our actions toward each other, the hope has become lost, while the faith has become buried deep within us, as we have become so divided, that we can not even say a simple hello to our neighbors anymore. This journey through life is so much better when we come together in unity, it is this division that will bring to us, all the hatred, ugliness, and chaos that we see today. We the people started all this ugliness, we the people can end it as well, if only we come together in unity, come together within the house of the Lord, so we can truly see deeply of what we see within the horizon, of the true landscape that God created for us all. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with unity we can overcome anything we set out to do, as we walk within the peace and joy that Jesus taught us, at the time of his journey here with us.

” God gave us the farmer to help mother nature cultivate and sow the seeds, for all the fruits of this land”

” The birds fly through the skies with ease as they glide into the horizon of life, so we can look deeply into that horizon to truly see all its beauty”

Material things

” What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul”

Mark 8:36

” The Bible says, is not with money itself, but with our love of money”, ” The love of money is a root of all kinds of Evil”

1 Timothy 6:10

We of this society have become so consumed with money and of material things, that we have lost total sight of were we are truly going along this journey of life. Through our need of money, it has turned us into someone that, not even we ourselves know truly of who we are and even as we look into any mirror. The greed of everything around us, has us look at everything with the eyes of, how much does that cost? The real true beauty around has no price and is priceless when we view them from the right angle, most of the time if something has no price and cost us nothing, then because of our need of money, we then look at that item as worthless and not worth it? Then we move past that item and forget about whatever it is.

When Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey, he did so with the clothes on his back, and looked like what we see in any city, a homeless man. Today when we see anyone living out in the streets, we look away as if they have some kind of crazy and very infectious disease? Now true some may have made that choice to live that way, but most did not, as they were forced onto the streets, not just of bad times, but for reasons that greed had taken everything from them. Because of greed, we essentially have put a price on all our lives as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look at the Leaders of some of the other countries today, with them it is all about, power, control and greed. They value more of what can you do for me, instead of what can I do for you, greed is the root of everything Evil and if you follow the money, then you as well will be led to a path of destruction sooner or later. I get the fact we all want to be comfortable, but really just how comfortable can you be, when there is a hefty price tag, on everything you do, say, or even buy. Greed has become so powerful to all of us, gone are the days of a simple thing like Bartering, now most in this society have no clue what Bartering is because of greed, it is quite simple, when you exchange something with another for a service, with no monies exchanging hands, well then you have done the simple act of bartering, not too mention the fact that, now you have done something even greater like, you have now created a trust and a bond with another, that can and will last a lifetime.

We have fallen so deep within the bubble of greed, that now we will purchase all the material things, just so we will look more powerful than those around us, we will purchase land to build a home on, without thinking of the lives that will get disrupted, when the land gets cleared? But what we never think of when we purchase that land is, all the wildlife in that area now has to relocate. Through greed all of our judgments are thickly settled with clouds, as now we can not think clearly anymore, Plus through greed, we now only think of ourselves, with zero empathy or remorse for anything, or anyone that may be around us.

When you add in the technology like we have today, to the equation of greed, now everything has multiplied even greater, don’t get me wrong, technology can and will help us, but in a lot of ways it has hurt us to the point that, we have taken huge steps backwards instead of moving forward. For instance all th social media platforms today, when they were created they were very good and actually kept us communicating with those a far, but!!! Now we the people have turned even these platforms into our worst nightmares, and you think the creator’s of these platforms really care? They have not lost a nights sleep over it, even more, they are laughing all the way to the bank, over all our anger issues and attacks we make on their platforms.

This society is in need of a major fix, we the people have put ourselves into this, we the people need to wake up to reality, and pull ourselves out of the huge hole we dug, from the appetite of trying to achieve all the power, control and greed of each other. Jesus showed us how to walk our paths of this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, but with our actions within this society, is this really the way we thank him? Jesus is within all our souls and his blood warms our hearts as it flows freely throughout our bodies, but when we do not acknowledge him, then our hearts and souls become so cold, we lose all empathy for everything and everyone around us, which then lets all the greed take ahold of us and control every fiber of our being. It is never to late to fix this, Jesus will always be there for us, but only when we truly feel his love within us, truly have complete faith in him, so we than can move forward with hope, so that we can fix what is wrong, then get back to walking our paths in peace, and move forward on this journey with the joy for everything around us.

” The darkness will only last as long as we let it, then the true light will brighten our paths of this journey”

” The trees will lose their leaves in the fall and may look bare, then in the spring new life prevails with fresh leaves on all the trees”

” God created all this beauty for us all to come together, not to separate and destroy everything around us”

This Journey

” Here we spend our time, and what we see”

” What we think about matter”

Psalm 119:37

Corinthians 10:5

It is the many smaller journeys, within this bigger journey called Life, that make us up to be who we are? The Perspectives, the visions, the way we take actions from what we see, to inmplement them in our own way, this not only forms who we become, but what we tend to forget is, it forms many others around us, whether in a negative way, or a positive way.

We are all within this broken society today simply because, we in one way shape or form, have failed each other with our own actions. We have lost sight of one of the biggest conmandments that Moses, brought forth to each of us, from our Father, and the creator of all the beauty around us, ” Love Thy Neighbor”. We do not even know our neighbors anymore, let alone a simple hello in passing, we all move around like we are the creator’s? Like we own everything around us, and are entitled to everything around us? Yes God created all this for us to enjoy, but to enjoy with each other in harmony, without trying to attack and kill each other. Until the day comes that we all get back to who we truly are, we may never get back to a good and healthy society, it all starts with the actions of each one of us, as we move forward within our own journeys, of this journey thru life.

This journey through life has much beauty for us all to see, but when we keep the current actions we are taking, all this beauty will turn to ugliness all around us. Now I get the fact that each society throughout this journey will grow from one to another, but when they do grow and when they are taught the wrong things, from the wrong actions, this is where we have gone so wrong. Plus the fact that we of this society are so far removed from the time when, Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey with us, has led us away from the house of God, and so far away that, there are some who just do not believe, or have formed their own Idealologies about the son of man. Well!!! Unlike the so-called media of today, I have a real news-flash for you, without the belief in Jesus Christ, you can not have any faith, which then leads to no hope.

Faith in anything is key to us walking our paths confidently, to be better and stronger. With faith in our selves, we then can keep moving forward, without stepping backwards into the unknown, and with that faith, we than can have great hope, that helps us to not just be who we are, but succeed in everything we set out to do, as we walk our paths of this journey. Now some in this society who have no faith in anything, will try to bring their inabilities to the rest of us? Then say that, you need to do as I say, because it is the only way? Some and because of their inabilities, will try to wreak all the power over us, so they can seem ( only to themselves), as the most powerful over all others. Then you have the ones that, just simply go with the flow, as to not bring any unwanted pain and hurt, let alone anything that takes away their comfort. People today fear so much of all ugliness and hatred out there, that they forget how to actually take a stand to it, how to look the fear in the eyes, so they can end that fear around them, so they keep to the status Quo, cause they fear more of the actions that may come to them.

We need to change our actions we take toward each other, we attack each other at every turn, this is not what Jesus taught us within his journey here, some will be Politically correct to your face, then stab you in the back when you turn from them? These actions only promote more ugliness and hatred, we need to get back to ” Love Thy Neighbor”, so we then can get back to, our true feelings and emotions, show more love and empathy of each other, then we can actually take the right steps moving forward, of how to make not only this society better and stronger, but make ourselves better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

With each little journey within this bigger journey, there is so much beauty around us, there is so much to truly see of what God created for us, the only way to truly see it is, we need to step out of our comfort zones, step out of our in actions, and get back to our true actions, get back to who we truly are, get back into the house of God, so we can truly feel the blood of Jesus Christ warm our hearts and flow freely within our bodies. When the blood of Jesus flows within us, we then will have the empathy of one another, so we than can get away from the ugliness and hatred, as we move forward within the proper changes, for us all to be better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, within the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us as he walked this journey with us.

” The many journeys within this bigger journey, are what shapes us into who we truly are”

” Change is all around us throughout this journey, it is how we accept and adapt to the change, that shapes us into who we are”

Victory over Sin

” In all these things we are more than Conquerors through him who loved us”

Romans 8:37

” Resist the Devil and he will flee from you, draw near to God and he will draw near to you”

James 4:7-8

Thought of the day:

When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he taught us how to be conquerors so the victory can be ours. When the blood of Jesus flows freely through our hearts, this draws us nearer to God to enjoy his protection, and we no longer need to fear the enemy.

Just as the day time sky gives way to the night sky, the good gives way to evil. The daytime may give way to the darkness for a short time, the evil can be the same, only sometimes we let it linger longer than it needs to. When we give into the temptation of Satan, the evil will then seem so strong, we get lost within the darkness. Sometimes we get caught up in the darkness around us, and with so much of it, we try to avoid it by hiding deep within ourselves. We forget that through the darkness there will always be the light of goodness. But as we hide within, we lose sight of where we are going and become lost as we walk through this journey of life.

True at times the darkness will seem stronger then anything we have seen, but the reality is, we forget that the goodness will always conquor the evil and the light will return to us all. While the darkness consumes us, sometimes other forces come into play, these forces will try to control every fiber of our being, and they will if we do nothing and let them, which is why we must never lose the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, so we all can have the hope, that we will get through the darkness, to once again be within the light of the good moving forward along this journey.

We all have this inner child within us, this child also needs to grow in a healthy way, just as we on the outside. When this inner child gets neglected, its kind of like a young child gets neglected within society, they do not grow properly, which then leads to a lot of issues later in life. When we become so troubled, we then put up these walls and let no one inside of the walls, even if that one is there to help? Once these walls go up, then we will never see any light, as the darkness goes wherever we go? This will make us all ripe for the pickings of Satan and all evil to control everything about us. The pain of this darkness becomes so painful, we will then do anything to rid ourselves from it, which means we will bury our true selves, then portray this fake self to all those around us, and as we portray this fake self, we then bury our true feelings and emotions very deep within, so that the blood of Jesus will not flow through our hearts, turning it so cold, that we feel nothing for anyone or anything around us.

Just as Jesus resisted the temptation of Satan, we to can resist the temptation as well. We need to stay strong to who we are, never bury our feeling and emotions, and always look all fear in the eyes, so that fear then melts away from us. When we put up these walls we will never face any fear head on, we will always take the easy way out and become someone we truly are not. There is no fear that is stronger then any of us, we only make it look strong as we give into it and let it totally control who we are. This includes the power of Addiction, yes an addiction is very powerful, but when we let it control us and not stand up to it, then like fear it will conquor us and take us deeper into the darkness, with zero light anywhere in front of us.

Sometimes we need to change what we are doing, in order to get to who we truly are, and for some that may seem harder then walking through a brick wall, but in a lot of ways, we are walking through that brick wall, as we have put up the wall to begin with. True there will be much pain to fix what we need in order to get to who we are, but that pain is nothing to the pain of not being of who we are, just that we have numbed ourselves so much from the pain, we do not feel it anymore. We feel nothing from anything, when we try to move forward without our true feelings and emotions, but there is no better feeling in the world, when we are true to ourselves, have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, which then gives us hope to be whatever we want along this journey. When we resist the temptation of Satan, then Jesus will always be with us and guide to the path of righteousness, his blood will warm our hearts as it flows freely within us, his love will always be within us, so we can share that love with each other, and yes it is also okay to cry, as the tears are what heals us from our pain moving forward, just like mother nature rains on the earth, washing away the dirt and bringing out the flowers of life.

We may walk our own paths through this journey of life, but the journey is the same for each of us. We grow and heal in our own ways, but when we resist the temptation of Satan, Jesus will always be by our side as we walk our paths, its the faith that shows us that and brings us all the hope we need moving forward. The darkness does not have to be around long, which will give us all true light throughout this journey, as we see clearly of where we are going, with no obstructions to slow or stop us, and we move forward in the peace of Christ, with joy at every turn.

” The day sky gives way to the night sky, just as the darkness looms over us, the true light will always be around the next corner”

” We only fear the enemy because we let temptation control us and move further away from the power of Jesus Christ”

Happy Birthday to the Catholic Church

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed”

Romans 12:2

” I have set before you life and death****therefore choose life”

Deuteronomy 30:19

Thought of the day:

As the first church was created, the world was upside down. the imprisonments, deaths and ugliness were overwhelming, Jesus Christ hoped to change our world? but how can we really change when, we are deeply afraid to take a stand or even, to stand out?

There are many bridges and cross roads throughout this journey of life, the thing is, the bridges break down over time, the cross roads with so much traffic, become riddled with ruts and grooves, that can get us all twisted and bruised. We all want everything handed to us today, nobody wants to work for anything anymore, which makes for the bridges not being attended to, or the cross roads not being groomed as well. Back about 2,000 years ago as the Catholic Church was created, that society back then was just as bad as this society today, the big difference is, the technology we have today. Now with technology, it was suppose to make life easier for us all? but in a lot of ways it has complicated life in so many ways, and in ways we truly do not understand.

We the people are what’s wrong in this society and we the people can fix it moving forward. In a lot of ways we all think we are better and smarter than each other, which leads to much head butting, and we as a society not coming together in unity. For instance, when something gets invented you go through a series of experiments, you go through multiple think tanks with many others, you just can’t invent something thinking this is the change all, without getting out all the bugs and issues. Nothing is perfect, not even we the people, as much as some may think they are?

When Jesus came to us and walked this journey through life with us, he taught us many things, he showed us of how not to just be a fishermen, but to be a Fisher of Men. he showed us how to treat each other with respect, so we than can show our love and empathy to each other. He protected us from the evil, while showing us how to resist temptation, as he himself resisted the temptation from Satan. We in this society and because many of us have forgotten what the inside of the house of God looks like, and in many ways given into the temptation of evil and Satan, we have buried our true feelings of love and empathy, as to try to protect ourselves from all evils, which does nothing except, makes our hearts go cold, and stops the heart from letting the blood of Jesus Christ flow freely throughout our bodies. We of this society today, think very strongly that, we know more than all others, which because of this mindset, has lead all into the path and destruction that Satan wants, as we all have gone in the other direction of what Jesus wants for us all.

Change is good, change can be difficult and bring much pain, but if we do not adapt to the change, then we as a society will never see the light at the end, as we all stay within the darkness of Satan and all it’s ugliness it brings. Satan wants us all to be hateful of each other, as this is what divides us moving forward, hate is a learned thing and we have learned it from somewhere? We need to find where we learned it, so we can unlearn it and get back to true love. Everything around us will change constantly, even we ourselves will go through many changes as we walk our paths, we will go through many changes throughout this journey, but if we never adapt to the change, then we will never fully walk any path we choose, along this journey of life.

The Catholic Church was created to give us a place to worship, a place to go listen to the words of God, so we can implement them within our lives? But as time passes and we change and in some ways for the worse, then everything around us becomes diluted with we not being true to ourselves or even true to Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church is a place we go to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so when there is faith, there will always be hope moving forward. When we keep the faith in Jesus and ourselves, no matter what this journey may throw at us, we will always walk our paths with confidence, as we never lose site of the light from the path of righteousness, which keeps those dark days to a minimum, like the night giving way to the daytime.

The Catholic church is no different than anything else along this journey, it has gone through many changes from when it was created, which is what makes it successible like we ourselves, to the changes of life. The church in a lot of ways has given into the temptations of Satan, with all the power, control and greed, which has had it lose sight of the true words of Jesus Christ and then interpreting them to you and I as they see fit. Yes they have had some scandels in the past, and some of these scandels has led us away from the church, maybe if these scandels were handled better and in a way like Jesus handled the temptations from Satan, then our faith would be alot better, leaving us with better hope moving forward.

Sometimes through change things become frazzled and out of focus, when this happens, sometimes it is best to go back to basics, to move forward even stronger. Some in this society want to take away all the history, to give you nothing to glance back at, so you can fix what you need to fix, they want you to become so dependent on them, that you then do not walk a path through this journey for yourself anymore, and now you have become the sheep within the herd, for the small majority of shepards in this world. When we all come together in unity, when we all get back to truly being of who we are, when we all get back to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, this is how we get back to truly feeling the love and empathy within us, as the hate and the ugliness find they can not affect us anymore, when we then as Jesus did many times, resist the temptations of evil, so we all then can see the true hope in front of us, as we walk our paths in peace, and find much joy throughout this journey of life.

” The Philosophy of life is really very simple, just that we the people have twisted in so many ways that we have become out of focus from it”

” The bridge over troubles waters have become frazzled and in need of a fixing to keep all moving forward without falling to the peril below”

The greatest security is the home within Heaven

” Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the son of man has no place to lay his head”

Matthew 8:20

” He who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty”

Psalms 91:1

Thought of the day:

Security is a big deal, it’s why we seek committed relationships, or high paying jobs. That’s also why it’s devastating when spouses leave and jobs are eliminated. Christ is the only true source of security, he will never leave you, or forsake you.

This journey through life we all walk a path within, is very much the same journey that Jesus Christ walked, when he came to us all. I get the fact that some will not truly believe in the son of man, they think it is just a myth, only because we are so far removed from this time, and the fact we of this time haven’t physically seen him, just we can not find the faith to truly believe. Very true that many of us have totally forgotten of what it looks like in the house of God, but you really do not have to walk in through the doors, simply because, if you have the true faith in Jesus Christ, he then lives within you, he gives you the faith in yourself, so you can achieve anything you set out to do. These days we live our lives on the exterior, but when that exterior is taken from us, like our jobs, or relationships, then we become extremely insecure in all we do, we lose faith in moving forward along our paths, then simply wander aimlessly throughout this journey.

Now with all the technology out there, yes there will be many security breaches, but when you truly believe in the faith of Jesus Christ, truly feel his love within your heart, there is nothing or anybody that can breach that security from you. I get the fact that we all want that someone special at our side, but with all the change that happens around us, with the way we change in our own ways, the only real security we can have is, with we ourselves, as we have total faith in ourselves like we do in Jesus. Is there really a such thing as a dream job? Within the way things change around us, there is no set dream job, job security is a thing of the past, as all the companies go through their changes, with these changing times. Each company has an image to portray, and if you do not portray that image, then its not worth your time to pursue that company, no matter how bad you want that job. Sometimes a job you think is not that glorious, ends up being just as glorious as the job that rejected you for an image.

We all in a way, within this society have become so fake, we will put forth a form of fake self toward others in order to try to be excepted by them, but at what cost does this practice really take? Because when we can’t even except ourselves for who we truly are, then how can all others truly except us as well? If we only put the effort in that we do for portraying our fake selves, just imagine how perfect this world would be, if we all put in the same effort, to be who we truly are? Just maybe this world would have more peace, happiness and love within it, as we walk through this journey.

This journey from beginning to end is all the same for each of us, just like we are all equal to each other, but just like we are unique to each other, this journey is unique as well, with the many paths within it for us all to choose from. Now as we choose which path we want to walk, when we do so with the total faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, there will never be a wrong path, but when the faith is not there, then neither is the hope as we try to move forward within this journey. With no faith and no hope, we will never be secure in what we do, without any security as we walk our paths, this is where all the chaos and the ugliness will come to us, the problem then is, we will never see clearly along our paths, as the clouds from the chaos, become so dark, we will see no light anywhere on the path.

This society is so screwed up, that we think if we have all the money, then all our issues will go away? Money may buy all your material things, which gives you the fake feeling of security, but take away all the material things, take away all the money, and let’s see just how happy you can be? Within the true faith in yourself and in Jesus Christ, this is all the happiness you truly need, as now you can be truly of who you are, without making a conceded effort, to keep this fake self going. Being fake only breeds all insecurities, and when we put forth this fake self, not only are we not being true to one another, now we can not trust one another, which then leads into the lack of respect as well. All the ingredients we are all seeing around us now, the way we change this is, we all have to start being true to ourselves, start being true to who we are, then all the security we need, will be back within us. The security of knowing Jesus Christ is within us, the security that the faith in ourselves and in Jesus, is warming our hearts, so his blood can flow freely within us, which then gives us hope in all we do. With this kind of security, then we all can walk our paths in peace and joy, throughout this journey of life.

” We may leave our homes and our material things behind as this journey ends, but our true homes are within heaven with our faith in Jesus Christ”

” Without any security then we walk aimlessly through this journey, when we feel secure now we walk with a purpose”

Having Faith and truly Believing

Digital Camera

” And the Angel said to her in reply, the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the most high will overshadow you, therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the son of God”

” For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Christ and Lord”

Within this society of today, do we truly have faith? I mean not just to have the faith to leave for work and return home later, but do we truly have the faith that everything happens for a reason, and yes we can over come whatever that may cross our paths, and when we do, then there will always be hope for us all, as we walk this journey of life. Belief…. this is something we do totally within our hearts, it is not just a word that is thrown out there, just to make like we understand something, when you truly believe 100% with your heart, there is no copy, or there is no faking the belief, because when you truly believe, not only will the faith be there, but there will always be hope as we move forward along our paths, of this journey through life.

True without faith there is no hope, also true that with no belief, there will be no faith or hope, which then leaves us all empty as we walk our paths of this journey through life. There are so many factors throughout this journey, true it can get overwhelming at times, we can lose our way and become lost, as then we are just wandering and not walking as we should. When we truly believe in something, we will always have the faith in that something, which then gives us great hope moving forward along our paths,

Jesus Christ is a great example of true belief, cause when we have complete faith within our hearts and souls for Jesus Christ, then not only can we feel his love within us, but he will help strengthen our faith in him, as he brings us great hope moving forward. True some may say we never see him, but when you truly believe in Jesus Christ, then we shall see the signs he leaves us, as we then discover the faith in not just ourselves, but the faith in Jesus Christ as well, which then leads us to great hope moving forward, which then helps this journey seem not as tough as we sometimes make it out to be. We may never see Jesus among us, but the signs he sends us to see, are all around us, which is why we always need to look deeply at what we see, because when we do not, this is when we will never see the signs, which then leads to zero belief, followed by no faith and the hope will never come to us throughout this journey.

This time of the year, the time of Christmas, is truly the most magical time and the most precious time as well. It is the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, it brings forth the belief in him, so we can truly feel his love within our hearts and souls, then with the belief the faith will then come, and not just in him, but in ourselves as well, while we truly see the signs that Jesus brings to each of us, then as our faith becomes stronger, then the hope we will find right in front of us, leading us into the path of righteousness. Even through the darkest of times, when we find that path of righteousness, the light of Jesus Christ will always light our way, throughout this journey of life. Jesus Christ is always there, he is always within us no matter what, it is us who lose the belief, which gives us no faith, to see no hope as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

” Merry Christmas to all and to all may you totally have the belief in Jesus Christ, which leads you to the faith in yourself and him, while the hope is in front of you”

” Jesus Christ is within us all, which is why we need to look deeply into what we see all the time throughout this journey”

” The three factors in life that we all need to be conscious of always, belief, faith, and hope”

The light of Jesus Christ is with us all throughout this journey of life

The light of Jesus Christ is within all our souls and beats within our hearts, Jesus is always there when we need, he will always heal us of our troubles. Jesus came and walked this journey here with us while sharing his love with us all, he sacrificed and died for each of us, so we can be free, not just as we walk our paths through this journey, but free of anything that we may encounter along this journey. This journey may not be perfect, we may not be perfect, but when we acknowledge Jesus Christ within us, this journey will be as close to perfect as perfect can be.

The darkness that encompasses us all today within this society, only comes to us as we have lost touch with the love of Jesus within our hearts, we have strayed away from the house of the Lord and put ourselves above Jesus Christ. The result of all this crap around us today, is a direct result of the fact that we all have lost the feeling of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Our hearts have become cold towards each other as we only think of ourselves and put ourselves above one another, this is not what Jesus taught us when he walked this journey here with us, The problem of this society lies within each us and the solution is also within us, if only we could truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Within this fast paced society, where we want everything now and become impatient, most do not visit the house of God anymore, which the excuse ” I am too busy”, is the excuse of the day, instead of making a weekly trip and praying to Jesus, so we can heal ourselves of our troubles, when we do not heal properly, now we suppress and bury our troubles and try to move forward, but when we suppress we are only delaying til a later time, just we do not realize it at the time. Faith is a key component in our lives, not just faith in ourselves, but having the complete faith in Jesus Christ, as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we lose the faith and have no confidence in ourselves, it is Jesus that helps us find it, so we than can have hope moving forward, as when there is faith there will always be hope.

We may walk many paths through this journey, but there is only one journey in our lives as we all have the same beginning and the same ending. The paths may change as other variables may change in our lives, these variables will come to us in many different ways, with some bringing much pain and hurt, there are many of us feeling the pain and hurt, and we all deal with it in our own way, we never talk to anybody of what ails us, because we don’t want to admit to any weakness, but as they say talk is cheap, on the contrary, talk will make us all rich, as it heals us within our souls, so we can keep moving forward better and stronger. For the most part, the pain and hurt will keep us from being true to ourselves as well as each other, it will have us hide within and become someone for who we truly are not, there are many today who are hurting, but we will never know, as they keep to themselves in this world of fast pace.

This journey may have many variables, but when we keep the variables to a minimum, this journey will then reward us with a journey well walked, Throughout this journey, Jesus is always within us no matter of what path we may walk, we just need to acknowledge him, so he than can help us heal from all our troubles. Jesus can’t help us unless we acknowledge him and when we distent ourselves from him, that is when our confidence goes away and the troubles seem to get bigger then they really are, which then the light turns to darkness and we become cold to everything around us.

” The light turns to darkness, then with faith and hope the darkness will then go back to the bright lights, that light up our paths moving forward”

” Talk is never cheap as true talk will help us become even richer then any amount of money will bring us to”

What a difference a day makes

” Today we work on now, as yesterday is in the past, tomorrow may never come, as we should never live for tomorrow to escape yesterday, so just simply live in the present as each day comes”

One day may bring calm and clear skies, as the next day will bring clouds, a storm, with some rough water, everyday may never be a given, but what is a given, is the way we walk our paths, through this journey of life. No matter on how much the deck may get stacked against us from time to time, there is nothing we can not do throughout this journey, As the days shift from tomorrow to yesterday, and as time goes by like the wind going through the leaves on a tree, when we walk our paths correctly and within the present, this journey will always be, a journey of fulfillment and enrichment, as we strive to be better and stronger moving forward.

There will be many things that cross our paths, these things will bring much chaos and ugliness, that will bring to us real pain and hurt, just like the change in the weather and the sights within Mother Nature, change is one of those things that comes along our paths and many times at that, change is that thing that unless we learn to adapt to it, it will further the chaos and the ugliness, change will have us live within the yesterday’s and never look forward to any of the tomorrow’s, then as it clouds our judgments within our minds, never have us live within the present that today brings.

Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is never promised, but today is what we can control now, no matter what we may be going through along our paths, when we stay strong and have complete faith in who we truly are, there is nothing we can not do, there is nothing that will come across our path that will bring us down, when we keep the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, and when we adapt to change, this journey we walk, will always be as beautiful as the beauty of Mother Nature.

The quiet seclusion of being one with mother nature will, help us heal ourselves from our troubles, especially when that quietness is along the shoreline of a rocky beach, with the sounds of nature calming our minds and clearing away the clouds within, so we can see clearly moving forward within the future. The wind passing through the tree’s and whistling into our ears, kind of like the sound of music from a jukebox, the loons swimming in the lake and chatting with their peers, an Eagle soaring through the wild blue yonder, with the greatest of ease, maybe even a moose coming out of the woods to the water for it’s daily splash, this is how we truly relax and heal ourselves from all that pains us so. Just as change comes to us, and how we change over time, so does all within mother nature change, which is why we need to adapt to all change, so we can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that Jesus Christ brought to us within his journey here with us, we just have to let go of the yesterdays, do not expect any of the tomorrows, and just live within the present, as we become better and stronger moving forward.

” We should only look back to heal ourselves of our troubles. then we can see further of what is in front of us”

” The past will always be the past, as the future will always be something that hasn’t happened yet, while the present is the one thing that we can control now”

Rest for the Weary

” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest ‘

Matthew 11:28

Within this fast paced society of today, that is driven by greed and self righteousness, we do become very weary daily, how do you rest or re-charge your body? For some maybe load up on coffee for plenty of caffeine, maybe a mid day power nap? Or maybe even a weekend away? But these things are simply a temporary fix that passes quickly and the weariness returns, as the faith in Jesus Christ is what gives us the true rest deep within our souls, we just need to come to him, so we than can get the true rest our body needs.

With our daily routines comes frustration and chaos within the world around us as well, When we don’t get what we want, we become frustrated, when our jobs push us to our brink, we then become very weary which brings a whole host of chaos to our lives, when we become so tired from the stress, the chaos and the work from the push, we then will enter into burnout and if we do not handle the burnout correctly, we then will become bitter, have a wide variety of health problems, which then brings us much pain and hurt. Within the fast paced society we forget to truly heal ourselves in mind, body and soul, because we get so caught up in the chaos and our minds get lost within the clouds of our judgments, that we forget to take the time for ourselves, to regain the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ. When we heal properly and when we get the proper rest we need, then not only can we walk freely of our paths on this journey of life, but we can also walk together with each other, without bringing hatred, chaos or ugliness to all that is around us.

We all will walk our own paths but the journey is the same, throughout this journey there will be many events that will tesgt us, there will be many who may cross our paths that will bring us much pain and hurt, as well as many that will come to us to help us when we need help the most, the problem then becomes we ourselves and when we do not be truthful to ourselves, how then can we be truthful with each other? The bigger picture of this is, not being truthful with ourselves, we then can never be truthful with Jesus Christ, which then becomes the number one reason why, we stop going within the house of God, to not just pray, but to hide deep within ourselves and not acknowledge of who we truly are. When we all come together in unity while being truthful of ourselves, with the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the love within our hearts will shine at it’s brightest, as all the hatred and ugliness disappears from all around us.

Rest is key for us all and not just resting from the work we put in from our jobs, but the rest that will help us heal from all our troubles, the rest that gives us spiritual healing deep within our soul. Getting out deep within Mother Nature and within her peace and serenity, will help us get the true rest we need, so we can heal within our mind, body and soul, from all that troubles us, so we than can move forward better and stronger. Some may want to vacation in an exotic place, with many others around and become stressed as they try to fit in everything in a short period of time, but thats not true rest, as it does nothing but add to the already tension within us. Step outside, step out deep within the woods of nature, listen to the peace and the sounds of nature, the birds singing their songs, the wind passing through the leaves of the tree, the water slapping against the shoreline, even a woodpecker pecking away at the tree. When you get out within Mother Nature and totally relax, you can feel the stress melt away from your body, kind of like a heavy weight being lifted off of your shoulders, spend a week out there and now you will recieve the proper healing within your mind, body and soul, plus you will also will trust yourself and while this takes place, learn to trust in Jesus Christ once again, as he led you to this special place, so you can truly heal as he wants you to. This is the biggest problem in this fast paced society, we don’t trust as we once did for whatever reason? We then hide deep within ourselves as we think we are protecting ourselves from any or further harm, but as the clouds then over come our judgments, we lose sight of who we truly are as we keep the foot on the gas and speed up further the pace throughout this journey, what do not realize is that while we bury deeper of who we truly are, our trust of each other gets buried as well. So as we move forward throughout this journey, we then hurt deeply each other and never show any love or empathy of each other. All this is on us the people of this society and all this can change if only we the people change our ways moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Rest for the weary isn’t just falling asleep, it’s the healing of the mind, body and soul”

” The power of mother nature can change everything within it, just simply trust in her and the healing will begin”
